I graduated with honors from Sunderland University in 2003 after completing a BA in Primary Education. Over the past 11 years, I have worked across all age ranges in the primary range teaching the youngest to the oldest children in primary schools in the North East of England. This gives me an excellent perspective of whole school progression and enables me to understand in more depth how children develop knowledge, skills and understanding.
I have completed a vast range of continuing professional courses, most recently I completing a leadership course with National College of School Leadership. I have held a number of leadership posts in previous schools; including Special Educational Needs, PSHCE, History, Performing arts and I have recently been appointed to lead learning in Science (Toddlers to Year 6) in the British International School of Boston.
I worked at the British School of Houston in 2007, which piqued my interest in international teaching. I returned to the UK with the vision of returning to the international circuit in the future. I was delighted to return to the USA as part of the British International School of Boston in 2013. I am thrilled to be part of an innovative and inspirational team.
